About the event

This event is open to the public. Attendance for this amazing event is limited. Reservations must be made in advance, and there is no charge to attend.

Program:

Do you know we have an urban farm in downtown Wichita? In partnership with Fidelity Bank, Rise Farms has transformed a carpark rooftop into thriving, year-round food and solar power production farms. This green-roof farm provides local produce to restaurants and Wichitans while lessening the urban heat island effect, curbing building energy costs, and preventing excess stormwater run-off. Join us for a tour of this amazing facility and discover more about this beacon of environmental progress.

Tour policies: To protect the safety of their visitors and produce, RISE has a few policies we must follow for our tour:

● If you have been in close proximity to plants or livestock before coming to our farm (e.g. a home garden, another farm, a flower shop, etc.) please change your clothes.

● Dress appropriately for the weather. Whatever it is like on the ground will be amplified on the roof, so layers that you can add or remove are a good idea.

● Wear shoes that are safe and can go through water. We will have you do a walk-through shoe sanitizer bath. (Heels are especially discouraged.)

● Please do not attend the tour if you are feeling ill, especially with a fever, jaundice, diarrhea, or vomiting.

● Wash your hands before the tour and use the restroom if needed, for we will be unable to take visitors downstairs to use the restrooms once the tour begins.

● Do not touch the plants, soil, beds, etc. Remember, this is someone's food!
